Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Bulls

by Jim O'Connor, 2022-06-09

Leinster responded to the disappointment of the previous week by crushing Glasgow last week.

If there was any moping going on, Glasgow's early try snapped them out of it. On the back of Richie Gray's moronic yellow card, Leinster took control of the game. The second half was frankly embarrassing for Glasgow as Leinster seemed to be playing a game of sevens scoring virtually every time they made a line break.

Well it was déjà vu all over again... again!

This time it was meant to be different. Leinster would be too quick for the big La Rochelle pack that slowed them down the previous season. Everyone said so! If you scanned the media coverage in all interested countries before the final no one seemed to give La Rochelle a prayer. This was a French team playing a final in France but still almighty Leinster were set to destroy them apparently.

"Hear about Helenowski and Brown? They got into a helluva scrap with six Mexicans at some bar. Helenowski lost six pints of blood. Brown's in a coma."

"I heard Helenowski lost an eye and they're reading Brown the last rites".

"What?? I have the report right here. They're home with bruises and muscle pulls."

In the last couple of weeks Leinster fans might have been reminded of the above lines from "L.A. Confidential".

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Munster Rugby

After a three year absence Leinster are back in the Heineken Champions Cup final.

After a slightly ropey start Leinster kicked into gear and blew Toulouse away with a superb display of attacking rugby. They impressed to the point where everyone in the media is virtually giving them the trophy already. But we all know how tough La Rochelle can be, especially with Ronan O'Gara plotting away. But more of that next week. This week, it's all about fulfilling a fixture!

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Stade Toulousain

by Jim O'Connor, 2022-05-13

Leinster got the job done in the first half last week away to Leicester. Then in the second half it was just about keeping Leicester at bay which they did convincingly enough for the most part. Some were critical of the overall Leinster performance but a proud Leicester team was always going to have a decent spell in possession. And the tough second half when Leinster had to dig in and produce big defensive moments will battle-harden them more than scoring another twenty points in a handy win. It should stand to them for the tough fight they face against Toulouse tomorrow afternoon.
